NBA All-Star Game 2012: Paul Pierce Only Celtics Players On Roster

Paul Pierce, who passed Larry Bird on the Boston Celtics all-time scoring list in the team's last game, was the only member of the Boston Celtics to be voted into the 2012 NBA All-Star Games on February 26, 2012 in Orlando, Florida.

BOSTON - Paul Pierce, who passed Larry Bird on the Boston Celtics all-time scoring list in the team's last game, has reportedly been voted into the 2012 NBA All-Star Games on February 26, 2012 in Orlando, Florida. Pierce is the only representative of the Celtics to be selected to this game. This is Pierce's 10th All-Star selection during his career.

Rajon Rondo, Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett and Brandon Bass were all snubbed for the game.

"I like them all to [make it]," said Celtics head coach Doc Rivers. "I guess the rest this year would be important, but overall it would be a good achievement."

Pierce missed the Celtics' first three games with a bruised right heel suffered before the season and started the season off slowly. However, in recent weeks, Pierce has caught fire. In 21 games played this season, Pierce is averaging a team-best 18.4 points, 5.7 assists and 5.6 rebounds for the Celtics. Pierce, however, could have easily missed the cut due to injury.
